Many individuals experience one or more social problems personally. For example, many people are poor and many are in poor health.
GivingThursday acknowledges social challenges that different people encounter in their daily lives in Kenya; thus sets 52 national generous days to touch the hearts of people facing socio-economic problems in the country. Beginning February 11, 2016: Thursday of every week, every month and every first Thursday of December annually are days set aside to give back to our communities.
Let’s come together to celebrate this new tradition of generosity in Kenya and bring positive change in our communities.
